The battle of the bands wages on in EMP’s 10th annual “Sound Off!” as the remaining semi-finalists meet this Saturday, March 5, for one last showdown. The final four– Fit for Hounds, Northern Departure, The Oh Wells and wildcard pick Tomten– will hit the Sky Church stage at 7:30 in an all-ages concert to determine this year’s “Sound Off!” champion. For the past 10 years, “Sound Off!” has emerged as the Northwest’s largest battle of the bands for musicians 21 and under, while also giving giving young artists from all different backgrounds a once in a lifetime opportunity to come together and play their original music. Past competitions have brought rising local bands like The Lonely Forest, New Faces, and The Globes to wider attention in the Seattle music scene. For more on the finals show, check out the link.
